Hi Everyone,

Thank you Tiffany for inviting me here. I am excited about this group as I love poetry although I prefer reading others' work rather than writing my own. I haven't written a poem since high school. (long time ago!) I enjoy free verse mostly and I also love the classic works.

Annabel Lee by Poe is one of my favorites as is this one, whose author escapes me now but it goes like this:

The Animal I wanted

Couldn't get into the world.

Sometimes when I turn away

I can hear it crying.

Greetings Friends,
 
Thank you for the invitation; I really do appreciate it.
 
I haven't read the 'rules'; but we are allowed to post our poetry ?
 
I would imagine so.
 
Much happiness to all.

Thank you Dawn, I love the premise for this group; hope and poetry, friends, and a place to share the good and the tough, and thank you Stormy for the invite. I see friends here, and I see friends-to-be and am very happy to be here. I realized recently how difficult it's got for me to express myself through poetry, and here I feel hope that I'll be finding my way again. Thanks to all who have already begun to share.
